    "Minamata" is a Drama movie in which we follow the photographer William Eugene Smith traveling to some coastal villages in Japan to capture with his camera the effect of mercury poisoning on people.

    I was very impressed and really amazed by Minamata. . A solid and important film, especially these days with very recent topics. It is a story that deserved to be told at the cinema as it is groundbreaking, shocking and absolutely relevant. The ending made me tear up.

    Johnny Depp is brilliant, perhaps one of the greatest and most versatile actors of all time. He turns in a powerful and sombre performance where he is able to emote mostly from his eyes.

    Brilliant movie
    This film really is brilliant and deeply moving. There are great performances from the whole cast, especially the leads. I felt like I was taken on a really emotional journey with the people of Minamata. The first time I saw this film, it left me in floods of tears - something that rarely happens to me. Excellent movie.
